|The Oxford County Championships were held a little later than normal and at the Sir Roger Bannister Track to celebrate the actual date of the historic mile race in 1954. Visitors were welcome at this evening event and included two Surrey Walking Club members. The first three competitors were closely matched and all around fifteen and a half minutes but only a minute or so behind was SWC’s Mick Harran around a minute inside recent results and in a personal best for the distance. David Hoben was not far off his 20 minute target and also improving.|
